Something exciting to report.
Well, relatively exciting, from a life insurance perspective. 🙂
It’s the Garmin Vivosmart 3 (€139 in Harvey Norman)
After 12 months, the insurer will refund 4 months premiums in cash (max cashback €1000) if you record an average of 2000 steps per day over the first 12 months.
If you record an average of 2000 steps over 24 months, you’ll receive a further two months cashback at the end of the two year (max cashback €500).
Don’t worry, 2000 steps is nothing. You’d cover that on a normal day walking about the place.
The beauty of the watch is in how aware you become of your steps, if you find yourself at 1500 steps late at night, you’ll go for a quick walk just to get to 2000…and in doing so, you’ll get fitter in a fun way.
Warning : Counting steps is addictive. Don’t blame me if you lose too much weight.
10% discount for the full term of the policy
To get the free watch, you must
At the end of the two year period, the insurer will anonymise all your data so that you are no longer identifiable.
Your cover continues and you get to keep the watch.
The purpose of this pilot scheme is to test the effectiveness of wearable devices:
The insurer will not use the data for any other reason.
The data collected as part of this pilot will never impact the premium , underwriting or claims assessment under your policy or any other policy you may have.
If you take out a dual policy, you both get watches.
If you have an existing Zurich life insurance policy, you do not qualify but if you only have mortgage protection with Zurich, there’s no stopping you.
If you don’t take the watch, you can get a 15% discount on your life insurance but you won’t get the 6 months cashback.
From a purely financial perspective the 15% off is a better deal. You can always buy the watch yourself with the savings….but you probably won’t. If you simply want to save money, don’t go for the watch. If you want to get fitter in 2018, go for the watch.
This is a pilot programme for a maximum of 500 customers across select brokers in Ireland.
Luckily for you, we’re one the brokers.
The offer is now open to everyone on a first come first served basis only…
